Mexico Mx

I live in Tulum with poor quality soil. I am growing limes but the leaves are all turning yellow. What can I add to bring the green back into the leaves?



Epsom salts (Magnesium sulphate).

I don't think they have that here in this part of Mexico. I will try to find some. If not is there a second best solution?
Thank you

Its a small world. I was surfing last night looking a villas to rent in Tulum for my 60th birthday. I had a look on google maps satellite and it looked great. If I get a villa I'll bring you some Epsom salts.

Thank you. That would be great to get a special delivery of Epsom salt for my poor little tree. Tulum is good for diving, open water or cave dive. It is good for kiteboarding but "surfing" not really....there are no big waves for real surfing. Hope you get to visit Tulum. It is paradise
